"AKA titles do not support the use of roman numerals"

  • Solved
When I try to add an alternate title that is already used for another title from the same year, it gets rejected, with the message:
This AKA title is already in use as a primary title.
Please check that we don't have a split listing for this title under both its primary and an AKA title. If this AKA is separate, please add roman numerals in the year to distinguish it from the existing primary title. For example Rain (2001/I).
Then, when I try to add an alternate title with a roman numeral, as in "Rain (2001/I)", it gets rejected, with the message:
AKA titles do not support the use of roman numerals
Please remove any roman numerals from the year part of the title.
What the hell am I supposed to do?

If "Rain" (2001) already exists as a primary title, then that "Rain" is already "Rain (2001/I)"

Try submitting it as "Rain (2001/II)" and see if you get different results. If it is accepted, post the reference numbers here for mods to look at.

No, that doesn't work either. Currently the form rejects AKA titles with absolutely any roman numerals. See e.g. 180228-040927-316200.

Hi Nardog,

Thank you for reporting, this shouldn't be happening. I've cut a ticket for our technical teams to investigate. I'll let you know once this has been resolved.

This is probably a universal problem. I'm experiencing the exact same thing.

Hi Nardog,

This has now been resolved, this bug was caused when our tech team accidentally introduced a new check elsewhere that was unintentionally firing on this field. The use of Roman numerals in this title AKA situation is required to specify that this is not a duplicate title.

Will
